Real Sociedad and Paris Saint-Germain: Previous Games 

The squad managed by Imanol Alguacil is going through a tough patch right now. Real Sociedad’s lone victory in their last nine matches across all competitions came on December 18 in La Liga against Mallorca. It was a terrible week for the San Sebastian team. 

See our Sheffield United vs Arsenal Premier League Prediction

After Real Sociedad’s penalty shootout loss to Mallorca in the Copa del Rey quarterfinal, they lost 2-3 on the road against Sevilla. Based on these outcomes, Real Sociedad’s best-case scenario is to finish in the Europa League qualifying zone.

When people talk about Paris Saint-Germain, they usually bring about Kylian Mbappe, who is leaving for Real Madrid this summer. The squad under Luis Enrique’s leadership is adjusting to life without him. 

Mbappe was a late-game substitute in at least two of the head coach’s most recent matches. Mbappe was even replaced midway through the first half of the most recent match against Monaco (0:0). Despite playing Monaco and a 1-1 draw with Rennes in Ligue 1, PSG is still comfortably atop the table.

Probable Real Sociedad Lineup

Remiro; Traore, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Galan; Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino; Kubo, Silva, Oyarzabal

Probable Paris Saint-Germain Lineup

Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Hernandez, Mendes; Zaire-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha; Dembele, Mbappe, Barcola

Betting tips: Real Sociedad x Paris Saint-Germain

Check out our predictions of the day for Real Sociedad vs. Paris Saint-Germain.

Prediction 1: Real Sociedad x Paris Saint-Germain / Paris Saint-Germain to win

Second-leg disasters are par for the course for the French champions, but PSG won’t be naive if they think they were lucky to keep a scoreless draw with Monaco on Friday. Donnarumma established himself as one of the best goalies in the world.

Real Sociedad should give their visitors a fight for their money, thanks to the return of many key players to the starting lineup. However, Enrique’s squad will almost certainly advance to the quarterfinals because of their home record.

Prediction 2: Real Sociedad x Paris Saint-Germain / Under 2.5 goals

Our second prediction is that the score between Real Sociedad and Paris Saint-Germain will be less than 2.5 goals. There have been less than 2.5 goals in Paris Saint-Germain’s last four matches. Considering the 2-0 result in the first leg, we expect the return leg at Reale Arena to be just as low-scoring, with two goals or less predicted.

Prediction 3: Real Sociedad x Paris Saint-Germain / Both teams to score

Real Sociedad has lost five of their previous six matches across all competitions, indicating a lackluster trend. Their defense lets in 11 goals per game, which is a significant problem. In 35 games, PSG’s offense has been devastating, scoring 32 times. Nevertheless, in their 12 away games, the other club has had at least one goal-scoring opportunity. The safest bet is going with both teams to score in this Champions League match.
